The starting point of all achievement is desire.
Before success comes in any man's life, he's sure to meet with much temporary defeat and, perhaps some failures. When defeat overtakes a man, the easiest and the most logical thing to do is to quit. That's exactly what the majority of men do.
A quitter never wins and a winner never quits.
When defeat comes, accept it as a signal that your plans are not sound, rebuild those plans, and set sail once more toward your coveted goal.
No one is ready for a thing until he believes he can acquire it.
Don't wait. The time will never be just right.
You are the master of your destiny. You can influence, direct and control your own environment. You can make your life what you want it to be.
There are no limitations to the mind except those we acknowledge.
The ladder of success is never crowded at the top.
Every negative event contains within it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.
The majority of men meet with failure because of their lack of persistence in creating new plans to take the place of those which fail.
The way of success is the way of continuous pursuit of knowledge.
There is a difference between wishing for a thing and being ready to receive it.
Animation can explain whatever the mind of man can conceive.

Set your mind on a definite goal and observe how quickly the world stands aside to let you pass.
Definiteness of purpose is the starting point of all achievement.
Put your foot upon the neck of the fear of criticism by reaching a decision not to worry about what other people think, do, or say.
There is a difference between WISHING for a thing and being READY to receive it. No one is ready for a thing, until he believes he can acquire it. The state of mind must be BELIEF, not mere hope or wish. Open-mindedness is essential for belief.
